I’ve been out of it the past couple years as far as FE dev goes, so having a bit of a problem following the install guide. The guide simply says to run
npm install prosemirror, but doesn’t seem to give me something usable? (I gave up on the npm module, as once I run that, and run npm install in the prosemirror folder it gives me the following error when I try to
npm run dist (I am on Arch Linux w/ node 6.1.0 and npm 3.9.0):
path.js:1142 cwd = process.cwd(); ^ Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, uv_cwd at Error (native) at Object.resolve (path.js:1142:25) at Function.Module._resolveLookupPaths (module.js:359:17) at Function.Module._resolveFilename (module.js:429:31) at Function.Module._load (module.js:386:25) at Module.require (module.js:466:17) at require (internal/module.js:20:19) at /usr/lib/node_modules/npm/bin/npm-cli.js:25:13 at Object.<anonymous> (/usr/lib/node_modules/npm/bin/npm-cli.js:75:3) at Module._compile (module.js:541:32)
I am able to install ProseMirror via Bower (1.7.9):
bower install prosemirror cd bower_components/prosemirror npm install npm run dist npm run demo
This gives me working code in
dist and runs the demo server on
http://localhost:8080/. I can leave
npm run dist-watch running and it’ll transpile automatically when I edit the
src files, so so far so good.
The part I’m trying to figure out is that the localhost demo seems to serve a bundle via
/moduleserve/load.js and the online demos serve a static bundle. Again the guide talks about bundling, but I’m not exactly sure how the Makefile works in the site, and there doesn’t seem to be instructions for bundling directly against the repo.
Am I supposed to simple run this in
browserify */*.js --outfile bundle.js
This seems to make a 5.4MiB file. Is this correct? Is there a different/better way to require modules directly from dist? (also something that saves the bundling process while I’m developing?)
Also, is using the bower_components folder in the htdocs of my project the appropriate way to go? Once I begin making modifications to src, should I consider this ‘forked’ or am I able to continue to use Bower to run upgrades?
